Cuthbert’s Way by LJ Ross @LJRossAuthor

Book Description:



After the dramatic theft of a priceless artefact from Durham Cathedral, the rest of the world believes that DCI Ryan and his team were able to recover and return St. Cuthbert’s cross to its rightful home. But Ryan knows the cross he recovered was a fake—far from being over, their problems are only just beginning…

Just as Ryan and his team begin to unravel the truth behind the spate of mysterious thefts, something even more priceless is stolen—something that can never be replaced.

As the nationwide manhunt continues without success, Ryan is thrust into despair—until he realises the answer lies not in modern policing but in an age-old secret known only to a chosen few. To recover what’s been lost, he must first crack ‘Cuthbert’s Code’, following the trail of a long-dead saint across the wild, unpredictable hills and valleys of the borderlands.

Can Ryan find what he’s looking for, before it’s too late?

He’s going to need a miracle…

Murder and mystery are peppered with romance and humour in this fast-paced crime whodunit set amidst the spectacular Northumbrian landscape.

My Thoughts:

I love how the author mixes history and present day. The story behind St Cuthbert was so intriguing and Ryan yet again is having to uncover secrets that many have spent years trying to crack. It works so well in how it brings everyone working together, more so Anna, his partner and mother to their 5 month old daughter.

The connection between Ryan and his partner is one of the outstanding parts that I love about this series. The banter between the two brings some great humour into the books but more than that the bond between them is so tight and goes way beyond work colleagues. Regardless of where there lives take them, these two you can tell will always be there for each other.

Cuthbert’s Way had me gripped within it’s pages. The pacing was spot on and increased throughout of which by the end I was more than just on the edge of my seat and my heart was beating ten to the dozen. Let’s just say my heart is still racing now! The cosy feel of the characters and their personal lives entwined with thrilling crime cases has all the elements of a great series and the author brings them together wonderfully, guaranteeing her readers an enthralling reading experience.
